K aleidoscope:  a constantly changing set of colors,
A ccording to the American Heritage Dictionary.  In
eality, it reflects the many moods of me changing
L ike mercury.  They shine through bits of broken glass,
A ll these words I've penned, to shatter into pieces ---

J ust like my life.  Dreams thrown into piles of failure,
E verything I'd worked for gone in a mad.rush of wind,
A nd yet, I hope.  Hope for better days, when I don't
eed to worry where my next meal is coming from, or

on't have to depend on others to prove my worth ---
h, but would that day come soon.  Until then, I
ebuild my house upon the foundation of prayer ---
y  God will get me through come Hell or high water.
A nd so, I write, looking to the One Who gave me these
eeded words to spark hope like rainbows after a storm.

(c) 2009, Karla Dorman (5/20)

Excellent Karla.
Reviewed by richard cederberg
You are a melancholic like I am. And still you move upon the hearts and minds of so many. Diligently pressing forward towards an uncertain earthly goal, but an unwavering spiritual one. Some people get their rewards in this life, some will get theirs in the next. An excellent insight into you here dear Karla-friend.
Blessings ...
